Thirteen Ideal Ways To Spend Free Time Without Spending Money If I Had Any Free Time

Thirteen Things about Pauline

1…. Read - uniterrupted - all day
2. Take a nice leisurely walk in the woods with a camera and a backpack with snacks
3. Paint - leave the paints out all day and paint in all my mediums: oil, acrylic, water colors, pastels, and try out my new Chinese Inks
4. Go window shopping - most of day in Barnes & Noble
5. Go to a nearby beach and walk along the shore picking up seashells, turning over rocks to see the critters living there (being careful not to disturb them, stopping now and then to lay in the sun and read, bring camera for beautiful sunset
6. Spend the day looking at photos - memorabilia I have boxes of photos taken over the years and tons on my computer and on disks I like to sort them, then sort them over again in different categories
7. Watch movies - I have tons I haven't watched yet and some I'd like to watch again. No interruptions, just a pause here and there to make popcorn
8. Go out and pick wild berries - We just finished the strawberry season, raspberries are almost done, blueberries are starting, and then the blackberries. Bring bug spray and lots of containers.
9. Play cards with friends - all day. My favorite is Hand and Foot. Board games are fun to - I do love Pictionary
10. Spend a day pampering myself - A nice long bubblebath - with a glass of wine, candles and a good book - give myself a pedicure and a manicure. How about a facial while I'm at it. Make some good herbal tea - do some stretching - maybe dance to a few Richard Simmons tapes. Take a nap. Spend the day talking to our Lord.
11. Crafts - Like quilting, scrapbooking, needlepoint, pressing flowers, I used to like to do macrame`
12. Go for a drive and explore local roads I've never been on - again take the camera to take pictures of old barns, animals, the river views around here.
13. Blog - blog, blog - read everyones blog - What I wouldn't give to have a whole day to surf the net instead of grabbing a few minutes here and there.

You forgot your most famous leisure activity! How could you leave out "collecting pine cones from everywhere I go, and remembering where I got each pine cone, even though I have 3 trash bags full of them."??????

Notice - I changed the Heading. LOL I never have any free time. These are just what I would like to do IF I had any free time.

You make me want to take the day off! Thanks so much for sharing - really, it was very cool :)

I would do all of those also. But I would need a little extra to learn how to paint. Great TT. Thanks for visiting.

Sounds like you desperately need a vacation.

I love me some good reading. Now that my daughters are 18 and 21, I sometimes go to bed really early and read myself to sleep. That's one of the greatest things in the world.

You hear about runaway brides all the time, you should plan yourself and execute a runaway grandma/wife trip.

Free time? What is this "free time" you speak of?

Must be a foreign concept.

Yes indeed, in some moments I can phrase that I approve of with you, but you may be making allowance for other options.
to the article there is still a suspect as you did in the go over like a lead balloon a fall in love with publication of this demand studio pro 4.9.1 ?
I noticed the catch-phrase you have not used. Or you use the black methods of helping of the resource. I possess a week and do necheg
